AMD’s Ryzen 7 7800X3D CPU which is known for its incredible gaming performance value is once again priced at $339 US at major retailers.
AMD’s Best 3D V-Cache & Gaming CPU Is Once Again Discounted, Ryzen 7 7800X3D For $339 US
The AMD Ryzen 7 7800X3D CPU has seen some extensive price cuts ever since it launched a few months back. The CPU fell to a stellar $299 US in October but since then, the prices saw a slight uptick and it settled around $349 US for most of the time. But we are once again seeing prices falling below that mark with AntOnline and Microcenter now offering the chip at $339 US once again.
Microcenter goes one step ahead by offering even further savings when buying a compatible AM5 motherboard with the AMD Ryzen 7 7800X3D CPU and bundles in a 32 GB DDR5-6000 memory kit which is insane value. Furthermore, all stores offering the 7800X3D will additionally give you a free copy of Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora which itself is worth $60 US and is a very beautiful game that works great with Ryzen 7000 CPUs.
In terms of specifications, the AMD Ryzen 7 7800X3D CPU offers 8 cores, 16 threads, and the same 104 MB of cache (32 MB CCD, 64 MB V-Cache + 8 MB L2). The CPU comes with a base clock of 4 GHz and a boost clock of 5 GHz. The CPU maintains a TDP of just 120W and has an official MSRP of $449 US, hence it is almost $110 off from its initial retail price, making it a bargain at this point. At this price tag, the Ryzen 7 7800X3D obliterates the Ryzen 7 7700X and even outshines Intel’s flagship models such as the Core i9-13900K in most games.
For new PC builders and gamers who have been waiting to build a PC, switching to an AM5 platform might be the best time right now, since not only are current-gen Ryzen CPUs like the above ones available at greatly discounted prices but DDR5 memory and AM5 motherboard prices are moderately priced as well.
